Streaming Video Consulting
Hello, I'm Jan Ozer, thanks for stopping by. If I was choosing a streaming consultant, I'd care about three things; knowledge, experience and cost. So let's talk about those.
In terms of knowledge, I've compressed video since 1991, and have produced single stream and adaptive H.264 streams using most live and on-demand encoders on the market. I'm also a shooter, an editor, and a live-event producer, so I know the on-demand and live production workflows from start to finish. If you need help optimizing your encodings with a particular tool, or improving your production workflows and processes, it's definitely within my wheelhouse.
In terms of experience, I've consulted for the last 15 years with companies as large as three-letter networks and as small as mom and pop web sites. I typically help clients formulate single file or adaptive strategies for serving videos to computers and mobile devices and then either create encoding presets for them or test and optimize presets that they've created. I also help them create workflows for converting and compressing their content as efficiently as possible.
I've done this dozens of times for dozens of clients. That helps me work faster and more efficiently for current clients
If you click over to the testimonials page, you'll find that my clients typically finish their engagement feeling that they've formulated the optimum strategy for targeting potential viewers, and are producing the best possible video quality with the most efficient workflow. If that sounds good to you, then we should chat.
In terms of cost, I charge $150/hour, with an average engagement of 2-3 hours. I encourage my clients do the expensive grunt work so that I can focus on the high-value issues. If we work together, I'll give you an estimate of how many hours it will take to get the job done up front, with periodic updates as to accumulated time. You can find consultants that charge less per hour, but my cost per job is very competitive.
To get in touch, you can call me at 276-238-9135, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or complete and submit the form below. The form is kind of formal, but it captures the information we'd talk about during the first few minutes of our call, so it won't be a waste of time.
However you choose to get in touch, I look forward to hearing from you.
